About Sherry Morton

Hello! Thanks so much for checking out our condo at the Plantation Resort as we love this condo because of the fantastic view - definitely the best at the Resort and you will not be disappointed. Take care, Sherry Morton

Sherry Morton purchased this condo in 2004

Why Sherry Morton chose Alabama

This Plantation Resort is the best place for families/kids/parents/couples too. Our family has always had a great time here so we decided to buy a condo to enjoy all the time. My husband and i hope to retire near that area!! Come on down.....

What makes this condo unique

6 Outdoor pools and an indoor heated pool right on the beach cannot be beat! The kids play tennis and basketball all day while cooling off in the water and usually don't even want to go to town!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Sherry, this is by far the nicest condo we have stayed in. We finally had enough room! The balcony was wonderful for breakfast and dinner. We made many wonderful menories. Caught several crabs on the beach and lots of sun! Even got in a few days of tennis - forgot how much i loved it. All in all it was a very peaceful trip after a challenging year! Thanks - til next year! Millbrook, AL

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful condo. This is truly a beautiful setting and I liked that it has its own private beach area away from the crowded Gulf Shores area.

Perfect Family Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the area and we were very happy with the condo. The owner was very easy to deal with, answered emails promptly, provided very helpful information and made the process very easy. It is not easy being clean when you are surrounded by sand but the condo was VERY clean. The kitchen was fully equipped with anything needed for cooking in. The view was amazing. Our boys loved that there were basketball courts, pool and the beach all in one location. Being a bit out of town was wonderful. It was having the best of both worlds. We would consider booking this condo in a heartbeat!

Great time! Away from busy downtown.

  • 4 of 5

I was impressed with the cooking items in the condo. There was a crock pot, plenty of cook wear, and lots of utensils. I hadn't expected that much stuff. I might have shopped differently! The Plantation has many activities to do, which kept my sports loving son busy. The largest outdoor pool was closed the whole time we were there, which might have been nice to know in advance. The other outdoor pool was pretty cold. Kids LOVED the indoor pool that was available. The wifi was spotty at best, which was also Plantation issue. I would recommend rugs at all the entrances, as I spent a TON of time sweeping. Joys of the beach I guess. Another item to note, the towels you have in the room is all you have for the week; no towel exchange. I did have to wash a load mid-week. Lots of showers with all the swimming and sunscreen. The owner was extremely responsive to my text messages. She was wonderful. Condo was good!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. There are 6 SIX outdoor pools which you can use at this resort. I was unaware one was closed at this time - sorry about that. I also give keys to use both indoor pools in case one has a problem to make sure you have access to an indoor pool. No owner has access to a towel exchange but if that is a priority for the future you would need to rent through the Mandoki Management and pay about $300-$500 more for the week. I do hate that there was anything you did not like and do my best to make sure everyone has a great vacation.
